Simple Paint Chip Mother's Day Cards - two different styles of Mother's Day cardsHere is a simple tutorial on how you could use sample paint chips (that you may have from previous painting projects) and incorporate them into Mother's Day cards. Here are 2 cards I made - one for my mother and one for my mother-in-law.

Steps:

  1. I personally didn't want the words showing so I trimmed the paint samples down to a rectangle and sized them to fit my blank card horizontally.

  3. As a nice accent, I used this paper punch on opposite sides. If you don't have a paper punch design, don't worry - you could leave it as is. And put a colored border underneath, or make your own creation.

  5. Figure out where you would like to glue the paint chips and position in place. For this card, I personally liked the horizontal layout best.

  7. Time to salvage stickers that I have. I was able to use my green stickers to spell out MOTHERS.

  9. To spell out "Day", I was missing a "y". So, this is where time adds up because you have to put on your thinking cap and be creative on how to utilize the left over stickers. I was able to transform "g" to "y" by trimming off the top of the "g".

  11. Same approach for Happy. I had the H & Y, but I needed to improvise "app". What helps me is jotting down the letter I need to improvise so I have an idea of what I'm working with (sticker wise). For the "a", I used a "u" and an "o". For the Ps I used (1) "d" and the other "l" and part of the "o" to create a "p".

  13. For the next card, I used the same concept (trim another paint sample), punched the paper design out and this time I placed and glued the paint sample diagonally.
  14. Simple Paint Chip Mother's Day Cards - second card has the paint chip also embellished with the paper cutter and positioned horizontally on the card face
     
  15. Trim off the excess.

  17. Think of what phrases you could make while utilizing sticker scraps. I was able to come up with Best MOM!
